Cerno is a collaboration between likeminded experts who come together to solve our clients' problems relating to modern slavery and human rights.  We also have specific expertise in conflict and fragile settings where these issues are worst and our clients most exposed.  

We work for businesses and donors.  We take a collaborative and consensual approach to doing business, which has enabled us to build up trust across of our network in government, business, and in the NGO community.  This gives our clients certainty that any solutions we suggest will meet with external stakeholder approval.  When dealing with politically charged issues like human rights and modern slavery this is important. 

We are also just practical, no-nonsense, and easy to get along with.  Click on our pictures to read more about us.
